Had a great time here. Hotel stylish and clean. Great bedrooms, warm and comfy specially as it was January. Staff friendly and attentive. Reception area very pleasing, with lots of seating area. Breakfast had lots of choice, with all the expected choice.

I visited here with my 2 grown up daughters after a visit to the outlet village just before Christmas. We were able to relax with drinks in the lovely lounge area on big comfy sofas. Though it is a huge area it is cleverly divided to give you a sense of privacy. We had a supper in the dining area... More

We visited Smiths for a friends wedding at Grenta Green. The hotel is very spacious and tastefully decorated and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed it was a good size with a big bath tub and plenty of facilities (hairdryer, ironing board and tea & coffee facilities). The bed was also very comfortable. The brasserie... More

Arrived at the back of the hotel (satnavs aye !!) through a housing estate and this must of been the tradesman's entrance as was a tad shabby. Plus winter garden. However once we arrived at the main reception we were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were comfortable and what we thought they'd be. However they get an extra star for the t... More

We stayed at Smiths with our three children. The stay was very clean and comfortable. Travel cot was clean for our baby and the children slept well in the bunk beds. We had the stay, marry and memory package so paid slightly more to upgrade to a family room. We married at the blacksmiths and then had a meal at... More

We married here in June 2015 & had an amazing time, we wanted to go back for a more relaxed visit & also the chance to look around the blacksmiths again & we certainly weren't disappointed! We were upgraded to Bensmoor Suite 3 which was delightful, we had dinner in the chainmail restaurant & the desserts are still to die... More

Fantastic stay. My colleagues and I were booked into a grim hotel in Carlisle, we checked out and moved to Smiths. They gave us a luxurious cottage each, very comfortable. Two minutes walk to the restaurant where they have great home cooked food. The staff are friendly, couldn't ask for more...

Great hotel for a wedding function, breakfast, or a stop over the night before. Couldn't really fault the place, the staff were mainly friendly too. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and everything is well catered for. The world famous Blacksmiths Anvil marriage room are just 1 minute walk away - i'll give it 8.5/10, top job!

We stayed as a party of fourteen for my dad's 80th birthday. We were slightly trepidatious having read mixed reviews, but have to say overall we enjoyed our stay and the hotel. As a large party we were put in the cottages and very nice they are. They are very well appointed and very spacious. The only downside was the... More
